My Most Loved Summer Holiday Destinations

It's that time of year where all I can think of is sunny beaches and when my next trip is going to be. Usually for every trip I try to book somewhere new that I've yet to explore, however, this year I'm doing things a little differently.

I'm still going to visit a couple of new destinations, but I'm also going to try and squeeze in a trip to somewhere I've already visited and LOVED. There's three places I've been that for me, hold a lot of my favourite holiday memories, and can see myself still wanting to return in years to come. 

The Algarve, Portugal
You're probably sick to death of me going on about Portugal now, but I completely fell in love with the place!

The Algarve has always been a very popular holiday destination with us brits, whether it be for a city break to Lisbon, or a relaxing All Inclusive break by the beach. Even in the quieter areas by the beach, you'll find lots to do and various towns and villages to explore. You can read more about what we got up to in my Top 5 Things to do in the Algarve post.

For me, Portugal has it all. If we do decide to visit again, I think we're going to try and get the best of both worlds this time. Holiday Gems has all-inclusive deals to the Algarve which I'm finding hard to resist at the minute. So maybe a few nights in a nice resort, and then a trip to Lisbon would be on our itinerary.

Disneyland Paris
Well I'm sure this is no shock, seeing as I've now been here three times. Honestly, it will always be one of my favourite places! From the rides, to the shows and parades, Disneyland holds some of my favourite memories as a child. And more recently as an adult too. It was my first time going abroad with my boyfriend, and not only that, but it was actually my birthday present from my parents!

I don't think you can go wrong with Disneyland to be honest. It's fun for all ages, and if you still insist you 'don't like disney' (seriously what's wrong with you), you can always explore the rest of Paris! We ended up heading into Paris for the day and enjoyed some ice creams by the eiffel tower, and then headed to a local aquarium. 

Every time I've been, I've gone in the Summer, so if we did decided to go again, I think I'd like to experience it at a different time of year, maybe Halloween?!

Corfu, Greece
To be honest, Greece in general is one of my favourite summer destinations, not just Corfu. You're truly spoilt for choice!

Corfu is a little more relaxed than a lot of the typical Greek destinations, but is still just as beautiful! It's perfect if you're looking to unwind and take some time off next from the usual hustle and bustle. I really loved Corfu, and definitely made the most of out time there. The scenery is breathtaking, so we often went for hikes or hired bikes to explore. Or we just relaxed by the beach, took a dip in the crystal clear waters,  enjoyed some greek cuisine, and came across some pretty cool wildlife!

As I mentioned before though, you truly are spoilt for choice in Greece. With so many gorgeous little islands and places to explore, it makes the perfect family trip. Next time I visit, I would love to get up close and personal with some turtles and maybe head to Smugglers Cove in Zante!

Of course, every holiday and trip holds lots of special memories, and I'd love to visit any one of them again, but these three have to be my favourite, and the ones I recommend the most to people looking for a fun filled summer holiday!

Have you visited any of the above? What's your favourite summer holiday?

  1. Girl you have the BEST taste in holiday destinations! I fell head over heels in love with Portugal when I visited last summer, I stayed in the mountains rather than at the coast but the scenery was just as breathtaking and I’d love to go back! Sign me up for a trip to Disney too, I’ve never been but it’s so high on my bucket list, I’d love to meet some characters and sing and dance at the amazing parades!

  2. So many beautiful holiday destinations.. 😍 I’ve been to Corfu two or three times now, and I adore it there! I’ve also been to Zante four or five times and it’s gorgeous - you definitely need to visit if you get the chance, I would recommend Alykes or Argassi for resorts, both of which I adore! 🙊

  5. Your photography is insane. I will definitely be adding these to my list of places I need to visit. Corfu is a strong contender for this year’s girl’s holiday

  10. I went to Portugal with my blogger friend, Izzy last year and absolutely fell in love. It was my first time and we saw some incredible views, such a beautiful place. I would love to go back and take my family. I've also been to Corfu and found it such a beautiful location. I'm yet to visit Disney Land/World but hopefully sometime in the near future!

  11. All three of these places are places I've always wanted to visit but after reading your thoughts on them I'm not sure I can decide which one I'd like to go to the most! Xx

  13. I'm very poorly travelled as I always stay in this country but I'd love to go to Disneyland Paris! I adore Disney so much and even though I'm not a fan of rides, I've been told there's still so much to do there!

  14. I’d love to visit Corfu. Portugal is a favourite of mine also.


  15. I haven't been to Disneyland Paris but have been to Orlando and loved it! I also really love Corfu - any Greek Island and I'm happy! xx


  16. The Algarve looks absolutely dreamy, and definitely on my list of places to visit! I've been to both Paris and Orlando Disney and I am dying to go again now I'm older - both times before I was so young to take in and appreciate all the detail!

  17. Disneyland Paris is always a good shout! The last time I was there was for my 9th Birthday in the summer and it was lovely! Hope to repeat it again soon! xx



  18. Portugal looks amazing, I would love to visit there!

  19. Wow you have been on some great adventures. I would love a holiday at this point and it doesn't matter where haha! xxx

  20. I need to go back to Disney Land and wear ears and look cute everywhere

  21. I loved Corfu, I need to go to Disneyland Paris one day!

  22. Although Disney World in Florida has my heart, I recently went to Disneyland Paris last October and fell back in love, so can totally see why you’ve included it in your post! Algarve is also one of my favourite places ever, we have a little holiday home there so I try to go as often as poss!

    Fab post ❤️

    Love izzy | http://www.adoseofchatter.com

  23. I can't wait to re-visit Disney when Joshua is older, I really fancy some sun breaks too. I miss living in Spain when it's freezing here xx

  24. Greece is definitely incredibly high up on my list; it just looks so dreamy! xx

  25. I think I really need to up my holiday game! I need to explore more instead of going to the same old places! Although I am in Cyprus at the moment and although I was here when I was 6 I can’t really remember it, it’s been nice exploring!
